On 23 July 2020, during the Higher Education Studies ‘Doc Week’, Professor Sioux McKenna (CPGS) and Dr Kirstin Wilmot (CHERTL), along with co-editor, Professor Christine Winberg (Cape Peninsula University of Technology), launched their new book, Building knowledge in higher education: Enhancing Teaching and Learning with Legitimation Code Theory. This is the second book in the Legitimation Code Theory: Knowledge-Building in Research and Practice series published by Routledge. The book boasts a collection of 16 papers that enact Legitimation Code Theory to address various challenges in teaching and learning across international higher education contexts. The edited collection includes individual chapters by CHERTL and CPGS colleagues, including Sioux McKenna, Kirstin Wilmot, Jo-Anne Vorster, Lynn Quinn and Sherran Clarence.
The virtual launch included guest speakers, Professor Steve Kirk (Durham University) and Professor Karl Maton (University of Sydney), and was attended by 125 scholars from approximately seven countries around the world. Using Zoom ‘break out rooms’, attendees were also able to talk to individual authors about their chapters in more detail. Thanks to the generosity of Routledge, five free copies of the book were awarded as prizes.
